For the last year or so, I have used two different apps for weather alerts. One is Weather Radio by WDT, and the other is Weather Alert USA. I like them for different reasons.
Weather Radio by WDT is great for push notifications when severe weather alerts are issued for my precise location. The alerts are timely, usually before the alert beeps finish playing on an actual NOAA weather radio station. Plus, the alerts are storm based, meaning an alert is only issued for areas that are directly impacted by the storm in question.
Weather Alert USA, on the other hand, gives alerts by county and zone. One can choose which areas to monitor for alerts, and the app gives a nice list of all active alerts in the area. I like the app because it shows me what is going on throughout the region I live in, not just where I am at the moment. The app's notifications aren't very useful, since they often take too long to arrive and can get quite annoying when there are a lot of severe storms in the vicinity. Thus, I prefer Weather Radio by WDT for notifications, but I then check Weather Alert USA to see what else is happening around me.
I recently learned that Weather Alert USA is no longer being supported. Although the app still works, except maybe for notifications, I don't know how much longer the app will continue to run. There were times in the past when changes at NOAA broke the app temporarily until an update could be issued, so I believe it's just a matter of time before I have to switch to something else.
Which leads to my question. Does anyone know of an app out there that I can use in place of Weather Alert USA? I need to be able to view active watches, warnings, advisories, and statements that have been issued for the general region I live in, including multiple counties and zones. I don't need notifications, since Weather Radio by WDT is more than adequate for me there. I'm just looking for something I can browse.
For the record, I used to listen to an actual weather radio for this purpose, but I hate the new voice they recently switched to, and it often takes too long to cycle through all active alerts when there is a lot of severe weather activity going on.
